Are you new to 3D printing and really want to understand what is 3D Printing?

3D Printing is a technology that allows you to print physical 3D objects form digital data. It’s also called “Additive Manufacture”.

 

The objects are formed by layers from the materials dispensed by the printer.

 

Everything from the amount of necessary material, the rotation of the platform and the design of the objected, is controlled by a software like Craftware. Those softwares are very similar to those used by graphic designers.

 What is 3D Printing?

 

Today there are several options in 3D Printing, from large, high-end 3D printers for industry manufactures, small scale models used by smaller companies, to consumer products, more affordable and less complex. This demochratization of 3D printing demonstrates the wide application range and the several advantages of this evolving industry.

 

3D Printing enables creation, it allows consumers to make their ideas alive without without having to spend enormous amounts of money that before was necessary for prototyping and idea.

 

You no longer have to print with ink covering a paper in 2D.

 

3D Printing Materials:

  • Plastics
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Polymers
  • Human Tissue
  • Wax
  • Edible Food
  • Sand

 

Such a wide-range of materials allow 3D-Printers to have a key-role in very different industries:

 

Food Industry: 

Decorating and designing foods.

 

Manufacturing:

Productions of several 3D components reducing the production time and significantly the costs of prototyping.

Introduce changed in the original models is no longer a very complex process.

The elimination os physical mods.

 

Medical Science and Research: 

3D Bioprinting replicating human tissues, organs and blood vessels. Potentially, it can eliminate the need of organ donors and it may provide human tissue whenever surgeons need it.

Another very important appliance of this technology is the  printing of artificial limbs with 1/10 of the production cost.

Consumers: 

Print you own objects or chose a variety of existing designs. From decoration to useful tools, now mass customization and production is available for everyone.

 

With this said, here at Craftunique we are constantly working to find better, more affordable and easy-to-use systems that allow everyone to create and produce their own ideas.

 

Craftunique, printing the future
